The popular holiday resort of Alanya reached by cheap flights to Antalya is preparing to make a name for itself in the agricultural arena with banana growing. Hoping to rival Bananas from Jamaica, south America and the Dominican Republic.
By cultivation of an area of some nine square kilometres, which is generally open land, this Mediterranean region of the city of Antalya already accounts for an important contribution of the domestic demand for bananas by locals and holiday makers in Antalya and Alanya.
Alanya contributes to Turkey's total banana crop with 70,000 tons per annum and the industry employs some 500,000 people.
Bananas grown in gardens or open lands and give a yield once each year. One branch of a Banana tree can weighs around 15 to 20 kilos and the produce is presumably used in the hotels and restaurants in the areas tourist resorts.
The main industry in the region is of course tourism which accounts for significant employment in the region with the tourist hotspots of Side, Alanya, Kemer and Belek offering incredibly cheap hotels deals from on line agents such as airflights.co.uk heading to the beaches after buying cheap flights to Antalya.
